One Person Injured After Their Vehicle is Crushed Under a Semi-Truck on the 10 Freeway in  Redlands, California

Redlands, California — One person was hospitalized when their vehicle went under a semi-truck. The incident happened on Saturday on the eastbound lanes of the 10 Freeway near the Ford Street exit. Emergency personnel had to use the jaws of life to extricate the trapped driver from the vehicle.

Further details will be provided as they become available.

Thoughts on underride accidents

It is concerning to learn of an underride accident. Underride accidents happen when a vehicle becomes trapped underneath a truck’s trailer. These crashes usually lead to serious injuries or death because the vehicle’s safety features cannot provide protection.

Because of the severity of these crashes, federal regulations require semi-trucks to have underride guards installed on the truck’s rear side. These special guards are designed to protect motorists in the event of a collision. It will be important for this crash to be investigated to ensure the injured motorist receives the protection they deserve.

While we do not know what caused the original crash, we know that no one should be injured when the injuries could have been prevented. If any wrongdoing led to the injuries here, the wrongdoer needs to be held accountable, and the injured need to be compensated for their suffering.
